Glad to see someone else who didn't go for the $1,200 headlights.

Ordered SIM on 8/11. Realistically, what time frame am I looking at this thing being delivered? Would have ordered sooner, but have a wife that likes to pay most in cash. Can't blame her for that. At least I got to order my toy. Also, did not order stripes of any kind. Are they stickers? What does a cowl stripe and trunk stripe run (RS Stripes) with real paint run? Just a ballpark guys, want to know what I'm looking at. I know the toy catalogs will be full of goodies, but don't want a sticker, 3M taped up car rolling down the road. Thanks

If your dealer had an allocation, 6-8 weeks. The rest???

I'd just like to point out that the SIM is such a hit color, and I am so glad I ended up with this color as it was my second choice.

Stripeman outlines over another dealer's fades. The do look good. Great optical illusion. Most people don't know they're not real. PITA to get everything lined up right. It seemed to take FOREVER. I did a wet install. I went to see a guy I know at a GM bodyshop today and he had to look for awhile too. He said they look good. If they don't hold up he said he could duplicate the look in paint.

Wow...no wonder. I almost ask if you had them actually cut out they looked so real. Great job!!

Sounds right. The orders get allocated for Tuesdays (Sept 1 is a tuesday) and the system updates thursdays. Check with the VIZ in his tracking thread next Friday. You should move to 2000. It is about 6-8 weeks from then. The priority 1 doesn't mean much. you coul dhave 100 orders all at #1. Call your dealer and ask how many orders at 1100 before you. From what you are saying, sounds legit and that you should move fast. PM me if you have any questions.

Sim Or SW

I know this is going to be a biased response in this thread but, Is everyone still happy with their choice of SIM? Sitting at 1100 has giving me too much time to think about it & I keep wondering if I would like SW better. Anyone with the RS package, how do you think the midnight rims go with the color scheme ? Part of me thinks the rims almost need to be chrome to really give it an impressive look. Every time I think I'm going to switch, I see a SIM at Avis where I rent almost every week, and I am impressed all over again. Problem is I have never seen the SW in person so I can't put this to bed for good. I think from a distance the SIM can look dull. But when it is clean & viewed up close the metallic really pops & the color looks fantastic. Who still loves their SIM????

I have seen both the SW and SIM in person and side by side. To me the SIM just has best of both worlds....classy and sporty. That being said the SW looked good too. I would for sure have put stripes on the SW if I had gotten it, but with the SIM you can leave it clean if you like as it has that classy look. Stripes looks great on the SIM too. It just shows the lines so well day and night. Of course I am very biased but I did consider a lot of colors before going with my 2SS RS SIM in the end...I vote SIM Go with the color you feel yourself always gravitating back to. Good luck!

Few picks of the V6 and V8 SIM side by Side....

Thanks for taking the time to respond. I guess I still just need to see a SW in person to know I have made the right choice. I'm leaving my order as a SIM for now. I saw a thread where a guy had his rims chromed so thats always an option if I feel it needs more pop. If my order would just get pulled I would not have to worry about it any more!!! Sent an email to the dealer this morning to see exactly where I am in line. It will have to start moving soon to meet the time line they promised me...

Thanks SirBrad! Looking back to when my wife and I were originally talking about getting a Camaro when they first released all the colors....it is funny how the Silver was never even an option lol. Once we saw it in person, we knew right away it was the perfect color. Our original choice or what we had planned to order was the CGM. So many options with the SIM with regard to stripes and exterior graphics. I am about to install some Black Fades Gill Inserts today as a matter of fact to my SIM.

Did you get your stripes? Look forward to seeing some pics when you get them or when you get a chance.

Don

Thanks! Wife was not 100% on board at first....but when she started driving it everyday, she loves it! I feel more guilty then she does about having 2 of them and she is normally the conservative one being that she is an Accountant/CPA...

SO every week I fly somewhere, usually its a city in Texas. I always rent from Avis so I can see the Camaros. This week they had CGM's, Black, VR, one IOM & 3 Sims. As much as I thought the IOM was cool & with dark tinted window it would be very hot. My ultimate car would be a IBM with SIM stripes painted on, but I just can't deal with the scratches & swirls on a dark metallic painted car. That being said. The SIM I have to admit just looked so much better to me than all the rest, and its the same feeling I get every time I walk through Avis. So it's been 6 weeks now since I placed my order & my dealer wont tell me where I am in line. I went to a # of dealerships in Central Fl. And they all wanted a few thousand over MSRP. The guy I ordered from was MSRP & only a $99 dealer fee, but what is that worth if you cant get the car in a reasonable time frame? Hell I just want to know when its going to move off of 1100. Anybody know of any dealerships around Central Fl with any allocations that are not trying to rip-off there customers? At this point I'm willing to give up on my GMS to just order at MSRP & get a production date....

Her 2LT RS V6 they had just gotten in so there was no wait. My V8 is took roughly 6 to 7 weeks to come in As long as your dealer truly has an immediate open allocation, it should take 6 to 8 weeks barring any snags in QC.

I agree...everytime I think I want to put stripes on mine, I decide it looks better clean. I am going to install some Black Fade Gill insterts from Autotrimdesign on mine in the next couple of days. That will probably be the only external mod other than maybe SS badges below the Camaro on the front panel.

I still like the looks of the Cyber Gray Rallys but I always come back to that clean look. Looks great both ways because it is a SIM and they never look bad

Here are a couple of badge pics I was messing around with. These are stuck on with scotch tape to take pics. I have not actually used any of these badges yet as I cannot make my mind up as to where I want them or if I will even use them at all....

Again these badge pics are just to see what they would look like in different areas on the car...



















Couple or recent pics...

2SS RS V8





2LT RS V6

Love the clean front end look of the V6. Wish the V8 has this same front end without the Mail Slot...
